California has numerous natural
bridges, caves, etc of no little interest.
The Mamoth Cave of Calaveras, dis
covered by miners in 1850; the Alabaster
Cave; the Crystal Palace Cave, contain
ing a number of attractive subterranean
appartments, such as the bridal Cham
ber, the Chrystal Palace Room. Acuri
ousappartmaut called Music Hall, where
the deposits of aqueous origin not only
take the form of organ pipes, sounding
boards etc., but emit, when struck, musi
cal sonuds and vibrations. Near this cave
are two natural bridges which the tour
ist can visit and return to the railroad
within half an hour. The only natural
way to reach these scenes of interest is
via "The Overland Limited, Route,"
comprising the Union Pacific and South
ern Pacific, now realy one line. The
only line running through trains to San
Francisco from Omaha, its fast trains,
arriving sixteen hours ahead of all com
petitors. Pamphlets and maps describ

California Toting People Will Hunt
Foxes in Polar Xeglons.
The strangest and probably the wild
est honeymoon on record was begum In
Los Angeles a few days ago. Two
young German people are the partici
pants of this unique and hazardous
trip. John Drast, the bridegroom, came
to America about five months ago with
the avowed purpose of Journeying to
the frozen North In search of fox skins.
On his way across the continent he
met the girl who is now his bride. He
told her of his plans, and rather than
wait until his return before marrying
she suggested that he take her along
and that the trip be made their honey
moon. Drast is 21 and his wife 22
years of age.
The boat that carries them, the Alert,
although worn with age, is looked upon
by those familiar with her gear as a
good craft for almost any kind of
weather. She is too small, however, to
attempt a trip over so vast and rough
a body of water. The Alert Is a sloop
rigged craft measuring about thirty
thre feet over all, wit ha twelve-foot
beam. She was purchased from a Saa
Pedro fisherman for $300. The couple
carried with them about $250 worth of
provisions, which are expected to last
the voyagers until they reach their
Drast and his wife are going to ft
point 600 miles east of the McKenxla
river, which flows into the Arctlo
ocean, in search of black fox. Whoa
skins are very valuable. They expect
to spend the winter somewhere en
route and proceed farther next Bum
mer. Drast said he would probably re
turn in three years. San Francisco will
be the only stop made between Los An
geles and the Behring sex
Drast seemed to understand the na
ture of his voyage exactly, but his little
girl wife stood by and wondered what
to think of it, at the same time mani
festing all confidence In her boyish
husband. Los Angeles Times.
